Ten designs, each using 10 yards of yarn, and 2 buttons, the set is meant not just to be a fun way to use up leftover yarn scraps for any knitter, but also to be a learning tool for beginners. So there are explanations of each abbreviation, and some info about things like eyelet holes, short rows, and slip-stitches in case you’ve never done them; but it’s also great for playing around with small amounts of yarn and making fun little accessories, for knitters new and old!

Yarn: 10 yards of worsted-ish weight for each cuff - variegated works well

Extras: 2 buttons per cuff

Needles: size US 8-10 needles; gauge isn’t too important, but it should be around 4.5 sts/inch.

Skills needed: cuffs start out simple (just knit, purl, increases, and decreases) and get more complex (slip-stitches, short rows, lace, etc); technique notes are included for everything.
